The ReT.Mr.FBOTiiiKaiiAM, a Unitarian
clergyman of Buffalo, recently made the
silver question tho subject of a discourse,
la which be indulged a bitter tirade against
the measure now pending in Congress as a
bill of abominations. This divine has un
doubtedly mistaken his subject. Instead
of dlsoming the silver question, of which
be soema to be profoundly Ignorant, ho
should turn his attention to the golden
street of the new Jerusalem.

ono thiur the other.
There Is n modicum 0 eommen kctso In
these BUEireetlon. The President ehould
, either throw overboard the dogmas thnt
tliuiui has injected into hlsndminutrauon
and nut himself in line with the liepub-
ff Hcnn partyi or give heed to the sjren song
Coalition.
It is now intimated by certain preewn,
which, like Macavvbeii, live in the hope
that something may yet tnrn up to their
advantage, and which seek every possible
occasion to manifest their devotion to men
irrespective of principle, are now charging
upon Senator Coxklimi a coalition with
Democrat because n few Democrats voted
with htm to reject two of the New York
custom-hou nominations where the terms
of the incumbent had not terminated.
This is a broad stretch of prejudice to get
In a blow upon the New York Senator, but
it Is made available ami the blow i struck.
The papers that strike at Senator Conk-
uno under these circumstances aro of a
class who have become the peculiar chativ
plons of President Uayeh in all that marks
bis administration with inconsistency re
garding the principles and usages of the
patty which made him President. They
forget their dnty to their party and enter
upon a system of man-worship that excludes
very other feeling except that of sheer
sycophancy. '"While it Is desirable and Wat
to sustain the President in all thnt is honest
and strictly Republican In principle and
policy, thero is great question about the
propriety of accepting all the dogmas of the
hour a orthodox Itepuhllcnnlsm.
Now, if it is a coalition on the part of
Senator Coxrliko with the Democrats to
have a few Democrats voting with him on
a peculiar question in the Senate, how much
greater must that coalition be on the part of
the President, who has put a rebel General
Democrat iu his Cabinet, and w ho has since
given more important official positions to
the Democrat than there were Democrats
found In the Scnute votiug with Senator
Conk UNO on a question of confirmation to

are thus throwing stones n little mora dis

Mexico is the sick man of America, and
It deohes upon Ihe United States to pre
scribe tho remedy. For years past the bor
der line which separates the two countries
has been the coutluuous scene of disorders
such as would not be tolerated anywhere
else. Wo aro far lVora saying that the Mex
icans aro entirely responsible for this condi
tion of anvirs. The American population
of that border is composed of the roughest
and worst class of our pooplo, and though
most of those ho participated In the Texas
revolution or in the Mexican war have
passed away -"died with their boots on"
their successors have Inherited all the bates
and prejudices engendered by theeo occa
sions, and tho word "Greaser" is to them tho
synonym of all that Is hateful or contempt
ible. In the Mexican border States ore to be
found even a worse class. Chronic revolu
tion has destroyed every species of indus
try. The owners of land allow it to lie
Idle; the owners of money conceal or
send It out of the country, and tho ownors
of the mines cease "Operations. The peon,
naturally peaccfnl and laborious, has been
transformed Into n robber, who follows tho
banner of some predatory chieftain, and
lives by pillage nnd murder, the preference
being gixei, when opportunity offers or can
bo made, to the hated "Grinjo." There
could be but one result from the proximity
of such men, and that result wo have had
for thirty years In continual raids from
both sides of the river, with the continued
accompaniment of robbery and murder.
None of the short-lived governments or
Mexico have been able, if they were will
ing, to alter this condition. Tbe"prc-cnt one
may be ever so willing to do so, but the
attempt would result inlts immediate over
throw. TheMexicanshave all the pride and
vanity of their Spanish ancestors, aud all tho
vices seemingly Inherent to mixsd racesand
any effort on the port of Diaz to hold in
check "the border ruffians" who inhabit the
Northern States would occasion "a pronun-
clamento'' upon their part and the downfall
of his government. So that it may bo con
ceded that Mexico cannot, no matter what
treaty obligation it undertakes, give peace
and security, either to its own citUens in the
border btates or to ours who live near them.
No stronger or more binding articles of
agreement could be entered into than those
which already exist, and they are but ropes
of snnd as a remedy for the evils com
plained of.
Nothing Is left but for the Government of
the United States to determine for itself
and of itself what Is the proper remedy, nnd
then to apply it, regardlewi of tho wishes of
Mexico or any on else. It Is a momentous
question, and should be carefully considered
before being finally determined. America
wants no Poland or Ireland, held in subjec
tion by mere brute lorco; neither can it
have its borders ravaged as were the Low
lands In the davs when the Highland clans
sn ept them with Are and svv ord. Cool, die
pamionate statesmanship must supply the
final remedy ; bnt In the meantime the
quick, strong hand of power must protect
our citizens on the border. To-day the ter
ritory of one of our States is Invaded, and
its citizens aro fighting for their homos and
firesides. Thero should be no hesitation or
weakness in the application of the proper
remedy. Tho fact that it is on our most
distaut border does not change the situa
tion.
Tho case should be treated exactly as If a
band of robbers had crossed from the Can
ada side and were beseiging the city of
Buffalo. We oil know that if this were so
a flame of indignation would light up the
land, and the robbers would be driven from
our borders and pursued, if necessary for
their capture, into tho fortresses of Quebec
and Montreal, without any inquiry being
made or thought given as to what England
would any lu the matter.
If what we hear lrom San Hizario be
true the same course should be pursued.
Such action would probably hasten a solu
tion of the problem nnd glvo us the remedy
for uour sick man."

arms of hh present wooers. It is duo to all
concerned that he should evince this amount
of decision of character and relieve tho coun
try of all doubts relating to his status. It
must bo one thing or the other. There is no
half-wny house, no neutral ground between
the two parties for him or his administration
to occupy. This is clearly seen and under
stood by both parties, and it is time that
he put off his hybrid character and became

Great American Meat Supply Company, Shares
were to be sold for $5 each, and an annual

It Is somewhat stranso to read that his
Excellency Kuo Ta-Jcp, the Chlncso Ambas
sador In England, visited Oxford with his
suite, the other day, to hear Prof. Legge's lec
ture on Chinese, the subject being "Jmporial
Confucianism ; or tho Sixteen Maxims of the
K'angtsl Sacred Edict." Truthful James,
civilization la not a failure and the Caucasian
is not piayeu out."
The Rev. Mr. Collins, one of the wealthiest J

Encland, was drowned in his own fish-pond
the other day. He was looking into tho pond
from a high bink when, being seized with
giddiness, ho fell against a treo, which stunned

eye-glasses were found In his open hand.
In a recent address on Erasmus to Glaseow
students, tho eminent principal, Cavld, alluded
to the nmnsug literary industry ot mat cele

John Bright wrote lately a note In which
occurred this nassacei "If children at school
can bo made to nnderstaud how it Is Just and
noble to be humane even to what wo term In
ferior animals, It will do much to jrtve them a
higher character and tono through life. There
Is nothing moaner than harbArons and cruel
treatment of the dumb creatures, wuo cannot
answer us or resent tho misery which Is so

Gov. Blub Jeans Williams, of Indiana,
Is not distinguished for financial llborallty.
Not long ago several ladle, engaged in help
ing tho poor of Indianapolis, called upon the
Governor fur contributions. "Why don't you
stop building churches," he asked, "and leave
off dressing In such fine clothesT Then you'd
havo more money to help the poor, and
wonldn't need to come begging of other peo
ple?" And he gave them nothing.
WEBsTEn's opinion of Byron, conveyed In a
private letter, ha lately been made public
property for the .first time. It was no gentle
opinion. Tho brilliant American says of the
great poet t "1 have tried hard to find some
thinKln him to like besides his genius ant
wit. but there is no other llkeablo quality
about him. He was an Incarnation of tie mon
ism. If Mlltou.was allvo to recast certain
prominent characters In his great epic, he
could establish tnriu witn new traits witnout
violating probability."

Senator Gordon's eighty Independents In
the Georgia Legislature may be all anti-Bourbons,
but no one would be more surprised than
Mr, Gordon if ono of them should vote for a
Republican candidate for Senator. It will be
entirely safo to wager a large amount that he
will sot be thus surprised.
Georgia seems to have acquired more fun
damental hvw than she knows what to do with
In her new constitution. Now that It ha been
adopted no two inon In the State seem to be
able to aareo noon Its meanlnjr In certain Im
portant cases. One J udgo of a local court says
of the instrument that "there never wa
made, by any State or government, a constitu
tion that wo so full of law-suit as this one.
There Is litigation on almost every page of It.
It Is full of loose and unnecessary lan.rua.re."
This Is a striking tribute to the master genius
of the late convention, Gen, Toombs. The
great man apparently maae a constitution in
the same way a he evolved a spaoch.
The rermdlatora seem to be ovsrwhelmlnely
In the majority In the Virginia Legislature.
Thoir organs claim 114 of the 102 members, or
92 Conservatives and S3 Independents, leaving
to defend tbe credit of the State only 43 Con
servatives. The latter are maklne a desperate
effort to unite tho Conservative party in favor
of the only honest course that ot run pay
ment of all debts but the chances are very
badly against them. Caucuses have been held,
which havo dono a great deal toward breaking
up the party and nothing toward saving the
credit of the State. The wrangle is as dis
graceful as it could powtbly be. The State
o (fleers agree that the debt can be paid, but
tho Legislature Is determined It shal not be.
i.yen sir. jrosr win una it aiiucuu to cnargo
this flagrant financial dishonesty to a lack of
"reconciliation." It Is simply '.pure cussed
new." and of a kind which Infest tbe entire
South.

Tbe Chicago TYMnias says that some of the
fl-oldUe class assert that the Government never
contcmpiatw paying irs Donas iu silver, now

foreknow in 1973 that silver would always bo
dearer than cold? Tho Government only In-
tended to pay In gold so long as that was tho
cheaper metal ; H Hiuy inienaou w pay in, in
er tho moment sold became dearer than sil
ver. The bond-holder knew this very well.
He knew the Government had the option, and
would exercise It whenever Its Interest would
be promoted thereby. The Government has
slwuvs exercised the rtcht to nav In tho cheap
er of the two metals, and that optional right

A ftw dan azo a drunken ruftlan. who was
permitted by a jwisenper railnsy conductorto
ride in his car, deliberately shot a fellow-pas-icuRer,
a son of Hon. William D. Kelley, On
Triduy he pleaded guilty to thechareo of as
saultand battery with intent to kill, but his
sentence was postponca ou the motion or his
conusel. In order that In mitigation he might

A ruftiin deliberately noes olf to brutalize
